Father’s Day is June 19, but the time to start thinking and planning for it is NOW.
Yes, you can buy Dad a tie. Or new socks. Or a new tire pressure gauge. Unique, heartwarming gifts, right?
Really, for not that much money and effort, you can put together a much nicer, more thoughtful, more memorable gift. I scoured scores of pages chock full of gift ideas to find 5 simple, easy DIY projects for Father’s Day.
Shaving Kit with Label Printables from Delightfully Noted
Okay, this is cute. (Although men may not approve of my using the word “cute” to describe something so manly as a shave kit.) But I love this idea! Packing razors together in a box, bin, or special bag along with shaving cream and a comb — what a simple, practical idea! And don’t forget to use the printable because… well, because it’s so cute!
Daddy’s Car Wash Kit from Inner Child Fun
Maybe I’m too practically-minded, but I really do appreciate gifts I think people will actually use! A car wash kit with cleaners, sponges, wax, and air fresheners in a bucket is totally practical. But it can be a time-saver, too! Putting all those necessary items together in one place makes the task of washing a car faster and easier. All dad has to do is grab and go!
Super Dad Pop Box Set from Lil’ Luna
This Father’s Day gift idea may actually require the most effort of the 5 I chose to share here, but what a great gift in the end! The presentation is great, and it’s easy to personalize it with all your dad’s or husband’s favorite candies and snacks.
You’re an AWesome Dad Root Beer from Nothing But Country
Here’s another bottled gift, but of a different sort! I’ve seen Dad’s root beer given as a gift for Father’s Day, but I loved this little play on A & W’s name! The printable tags are AWESOME. 😉
Father’s Day Handprint Apron from Catch My Party
Plain, ready-made aprons are available at many craft and discount stores, many for less than $10. A little paint makes it easy to personalize a grilling apron for Dad, plus provide a perfect memento with the tiny hand prints. These primary colors are bright and cheerful, but camouflage colors like browns, greens, and blacks could be perfect, too, depending on the dad, of course.
These are just a few simple ideas, but sometimes all we need is a pic or two to jump start our own creativity. The important thing is to start thinking and planning NOW to make Father’s Day a very special day for the special fathers in your life!
